So easy to spin your wheels trying to neutralize someone or make them happy....don't let it get to a point where you are no longer you and it is hindering your own happiness. Yes we are here to spread love and kindness, but they are responsible for their own issues. You can love, but you can't fix. And if it's starting to affect you, you can take care of yourself and let it go. Reminding you today that it's ok. โšก๏ธ

@markmester with @ktla5news dipping his toe in the meditation waters bringing meditation to Southern California. Tune in this am!

With everything going on in the world today these words ring so unbelievably true. If we could all live by them daily in both the small scale of our every day lives and also within a global perspective, all would be well. Thank you #martinlutherkingjr for your everlasting words of love. #mlk #qotd

Nerves don't always mean danger ๐ŸšซWhen doing something new or hard, a healthy dose of fear is a good thing as long as you don't let it strangle your ability to move forward, try something new, or experience the world. Don't let fear limit the time that you have. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Loved having the @prevailboxing team come in and take a jab at ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป! #meditateโค๏ธboxing

Even when we are striving to "be better" it's important to remember that we are also ok. #fridayvibes = acceptance.

A little yoga and some ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป = max relax at your department retreat. So much fun with @nbc

๐ŸŒtomorrow! This Jan Full Moon is in the water sign of Cancer ๐Ÿฆ€ and is also known as the Wolf Moon (Algonquins), Holiday Moon (Chinese), Cold Moon (Cherokee), Quiet Moon (Celtic), Rainbow Fish Moon (New Guinea). .
This is a beautiful energy for January, as Cancer is the sign of ๐Ÿกnesting, and protection, also of mother and the family. This could apply to your relationship with your own mother, and it can also be about you and the projects and creations you are mothering. It brings the desire to create โ˜ฎ๏ธ and comfort at home, to feel cozy and warm with loved ones, to show appreciation for family and friends. What a wonderful week it is to work with these lovely energies, as winter is a time of going deep within yourself. You can use this weekโ€™s energy to be more at home within yourself, and learn how to better nurture, appreciate, and mother yourself too.
This full moon promises to directly deal with any emotional issues which may come forward. Cancer the crab is an emotional sensitive sign, and people with a lot of this energy can be more sensitive, changeable, and sometimes a bit on guard or touchy. Keep this in mind as you too may be affected by these very qualities. Allow yourself to feel what you feel, and not need to make sense of or judge your own feelings.
In other cosmic news, all planets are in direct motion as of this week, ๐ŸŒโžก๏ธwhich is a rare event. This means that Mercury is now moving directly ahead as well, so expect those stuck places in your communication to begin unsticking for you in the coming week. If those stuck places include your emotional needs and decisions, so much the better.
Itโ€™s a brilliant time, with the full moon in your court and all planets moving ahead, to tackle the projects that have been on the back burner and on hold. โญ๏ธClarityโญ๏ธ is one of the watch words of the coming week, which means you may be encouraged to have clarity for yourself in those places youโ€™ve needed it. Have a lovely Full Moon Week! - Kris Cahill (

Physical #intimacy is different than #emotional intimacy, and we need both yet struggle to attain them. Join us tomorrow #Sunday at 4.30pm when @lesant and @drnikkistarr lead our popular workshop "Adventures in Intimacy" where they will utilize #Tantric and #Tao practices in #meditation, #eye-gazing, movement and sensory exercises to teach you how to discover new and playful ways of diving deep with yourself and other beautiful souls.

Rising above and treating someone how you would like to be treated, no matter how hurt, angry, disappointed or frustrated you are, is the way to bring out the best in them. Sometimes it seems counterintuitive, or even just unfair, but you can deepen your relationships by digging in to the strength within yourself. Secure someone's insecurities and watch how they glow. ๐ŸŒž

How did you start your 2017? We started it with an incredible intention setting class that we squeezed people in on the benches. Was so great to see so many people start their 2017 with us! Hope your 1/1 gave you reason to smile at 2017...what did you do?

Happy 1/1! Those #'s give you a fresh platform and we want to know what your intentions or goals are for 2017? Let's hear them!

FIRST day of a NEW year....always feels like a chance to start anew. We have one class tomorrow on New Years Day @1pm led by @h_prete1954 and there are only a few spots left so sign up now! If you aren't in the area, sit down tomorrow on your own, set some intentions and take a ๐Ÿ“ธ and post it so we can see! Let's all do this together!!! Mindful Intention for the New Year. #dothistogether #mindfulnewyear

With 2016 slowly fading away, there is no need to hold grudges. Let's start 2017 clean and let go of the past. It only makes your life harder waiting for apologies or things to happen the way you would like, and what do you actually gain holding on to it? So exhale it out in to the waves of 2016 and then take a clean, clear, deep breath as you swim with strength and clarity in to the new year. #accepttheapologyyounevergot

#Grateful for such an incredible welcome into the meditation community. Thank you 2016 and thank you @mindfulmagazine ! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Lust is simple, Love is complex. ๐Ÿ”ฅโค๏ธ #myDENtity

Even though we need to feel these things within ourselves it's still nice to know that others care. So tag someone to let them know that you think about them, consider them, and want them around. โค๏ธ #tagsomeone

You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿฝ #jonkabatzinn #myDENtity
Have you seen a surfer come in after a really good wave? They aren't dejected, they are ecstatic, feeling an adrenaline high. There is no reason we can't ride the waves of life and feed off their energy; what did you learn, how can you do it better, who are you? The more you surf the closer you get to those answers, and the closer you get to those answers the more amazing it all feels. So don't be afraid of the water, or falling off that surf board, learn to ride ride ride! ๐ŸŒŠโ˜€๏ธ
